Well Done!

The Hotel Deluxe, located downtown, is accessible to good restaurants, shopping, and a MAX station. My room was small but well-appointed, with the most comfortable hotel bed I've had in a while. The staff is warm and attentive; I sensed their desire to make me as comfortable as possible. I'll be back.

Nice hotel, quiet location

Nice, older building, with great ambiance. We stayed for 3 nights for our anniversary. Had a corner king room on the top floor, view was nice and windows on most of the 2 outside walls. Could hear into the next room a bit- not terrible, could be covered up by the TV or radio. Room was a little small- only a couple of feet on either side of the bed due to desk and dresser in the room. Room was very clean and nicely appointed, plenty of room in the closet and dresser (even with mini bar in the bottom of dresser) if you aren't spending all day in the room it is a nicer than average hotel room. Staff was pleasant and helpful, they reacted quickly and appropriately when a local city issue came up with the water supply- not the hotel's fault, but they offered bottled water and information about the situation in a timely manner.

small

although, the hotel Deluxe had a vintage feel to it, the room we stayed in was the smallest queen bed room i have ever stayed in before. At $169/night, I really expected more. I understand it is close to the downtown Portland area, but so is the Watertown hotel in Seattle and that cost just as much but provided way more. I will say that the staff were friendly and helpful, but all in all, it fell below my expectations

Lovely retro hotel

Clean, lovely hotel with an old movies classics motif. Huge room with very comfortable bed. Staff is friendly and helpful. On site restaurant is very good. Close to downtown action, but you do have to walk a few blocks to get there. The valet charges were a surprise, and a few bucks more than other hotels, though the valets themselves were awesome. If you don't need to leave the area, don't rent a car. Use taxis and the downtown rail system instead. The cost of the valet service was close to equal to the cost of renting a full sized car for the week.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't rent a car if you don't need to leave the area, get a cab for the longer distances instead instead. Valet charges for a week were close to equal to the cost of renting a full sized vehicle for that same week. I have arthritis issues, and I could still walk to most venues. Some, however, were too far, especially considering I was walking to the meeting place for a walking tour of downtown Portland.

Cute, but needs updating

The hotel is really cute, but it's old. The walls are thin and we could hear the conversation next door as if they were in the room.

Great stay!

We spent a week at this hotel while visiting Portland. It was a great experience. The staff and service are impeccable. They gave us great recommendations on things to do and places to eat. They provided us with local maps to find locations as well. The Driftwood Room was a great place for night food and cocktails as well. We also loved the location. It was perfectly situated between the downtown area and the 23rd street area. We walked everywhere we went, but we are big walkers. The cleaning staff was great too. The gym/fitness room was small, but the machines they have a very nice and up-to-date. They had a bike, treadmill, and elliptical along with free weights and weight machine. The business center was small but very nice as well. We will definitely go back to this hotel when we visit Portland in the future.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Most of the local restaurants have great happy hour food and usually offer it early evening and late night. A lot of the higher end restaurants have great offers during these times. The food at the local restaurants was wonderful!

Perfect weekend getaway

We were able to park the car on Friday and not get it to Sunday. It was great being able to walk or take transit to anything we wanted to do over the weekend. The rooms are smaller but decorated nicely and very comfortable. It is what you expect staying in a historic hotel. The omelets at Gracie's were amazing. The front desk staff was very friendly and were quick to switch our room to a/c and send up a fan when we notified them that our room was hot.

Great stay at deLuxe

Had a great stay at the hotel deLuxe. The atmosphere is fantastic, with the movie theme very well carried out throughout the property. The lobby is very stately and cozy at the same time. The little bar is one of the coziest , with great mixologists and food. The restaurant serves excellent breakfast lunch and dinners. A pleasure throughout with amazing service and quality. I have stayed here a few times now. If you are more than 1 person and stay for a while, I suggest upgrading the room to a "feature type". Much larger (2x, 3x?) than the single room I have had which is kind of small. Worth the upgrade price.

Snowy weekend

Overall it was a good stay. The staff was great. The room was as expected. However, from this type of hotel I really expect the heat to be more than a space heater in the room (the room heat was not working and was not fixed while we were there). Bathroom was a bit cold. I suspect the snow event slowed things down a bit for them.
